Actually, I think you mean me, I went there a few times last week and it was abandoned with the old rust buckets looking very neglected. Shame that whoever in charge there does not get a grip and restore these potential collectors vehicles.

Not to put too fine a point on it 'Cornbeefur' you are an outright LIAR! IF you had been there you would have seen people on the site Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and I'm sure the owner of the Routemaster bus you can see from the gates would be most annoyed at being called a 'rust bucket'. But then again I suppose you only went there within your tiny mind!

Don't you just love the priorities of the modern police "service". Pursue someone for calling someone else a "queen", yet let over a 1000 young girls be abused as they didn't want to appear racist. Please bring on the civil war that must soon happen in the UK.

It would help if the authorities issued a dictionary of acceptable insults to suit every occassion.

Need to start protecting the majority as well as minorities.

Can't be long before all arguments and insults are outlawed and we are only allowed to say nice things to each other. Might need some designer drugs, Lucy, or E's to help it work.
